my friend Zorana was gone.
I have accomplished a lot this summer but in reflection, I realized I have sort of been on an ART summer break.
I have stayed in-the-moment through this summer just doing exactly what I wanted to do and not doing anything I didn't want to do, in-the-moment. For example, my bedroom got a makeover and that has been on my to do list since....forever. Also, I made huge progress on Tim's Cloth and even set up a separate blog to document the process. I renewed my passion for the Garden Palace while getting ready for Zorana's visit. I revived my love of gardening somewhat. And best of all, I had summer company. One of the two sweetest brothers ever, as well as, one of the sweetest bloggers ever came for a visit. I've also enjoyed Sunday evening dinners with my kids. AND I did in fact paint a beautiful canvas, The Tree of Life, that is intended for an Etsy listing.
I've had a great summer break. One of the things Zorana and I talked about was the fact that if you want to accomplish something, you really really must have a plan. The Plan should be written. Otherwise, it is not a plan and will most likely not occur the way you have day dreamed it.
So while she was here, we talked about my plan. The end of my summer break coincides with the start date on my plan which is this 3 day holiday weekend. The first thing on my plan is to make twelve pendants for an Etsy listing, similar to the ones she and I made.
I'm on-target with my plan and presenting you yesterdays progression shots. Now, I'm off to continue working on The Plan.
